1095 Affordable Care Act


The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires agencies to report certain information on an employee's insured status on forms 1095. Office of Financial Affairs (OFA) has been tasked with assisting agencies who participate in the DFA Affordable Care Act (ACA) Centralized Reporting Process. OFA provides initial data files to agencies via the Mississippi Readiness Task List (MRTL) for validation and review. Agencies are responsible for reading and maintaining an understanding of the IRS 1095 and 1094 reporting requirements. Agencies are responsible for ensuring that information remitted to DFA for final filing is accurate and complete. (Important Note: While Blue Cross Blue Shield administers the program, State of Mississippi employees are Self-Insured by the State of Mississippi.) Below are some of the IRS resources agencies should review prior to reporting.
